BONUS: Yankees Open Spring 2023 with Loss to Phillies (2/26/23)
The New York Yankees played their first game of the season against the Philadelphia Phillies at BayCare Ballpark in Clearwater, Florida, over the weekend. Although they lost 7-4, many takeaways from the game were notable, including six in particular. Despite the introduction of new rules, including pitch clocks and shift restrictions, which are expected to change the game's dynamics, the Yankee's performance wasn't affected. The biggest highlight of the game was 20-year-old outfielder Jasson Dominguez, dubbed "The Martian," who hit a homer 420 feet to left-center field to lead off the fifth inning. Here are the five other takeaways from the game:First, Dominguez is the youngest player at big-league spring training for the Yankees and is considered the second-best prospect in the team's organization. Manager Aaron Boone praised Dominguez's understanding and ease of the strike zone, saying he has "no panic up there."Second, batters will need to adjust to the pitch clock, ensuring they're in the batter's box at the eight-second mark, and picking up signs from the third-base coach may prove challenging initially.Third, the pitch clock will make pitchers work faster on the mound, which will benefit infield defenses. Infielders will be more engaged than ever, and infield positioning will change.Fourth, Boone said there could be times when managers and umpires clash over the finer points of the new rules. There were some issues with the pitch clock resetting too soon during the game, which didn't give players enough time to get into their defensive positions.Fifth, infielders can no longer stand on the outfield grass due to shift restrictions, which might require some getting used to.Finally, despite Dominguez's impressive performance, he's focused on the task at hand and not on reaching the Bronx before the end of this season.

CHECK US OUT ON YOUTUBE!SAVE $20 ON YOUR FIRST SEATGEEK ORDER WITH PROMO CODE: CHASEFOR28The Chatter: Hey Batter, BatterThe New York Yankees are one of the most successful and storied franchises in Major League Baseball, with a rich history of 27 World Series championships. As such, it's no surprise that the team has a long list of players whose numbers have been retired in their honor.The Yankees currently have 20 retired numbers. The most famous retired numbers belong to some of the greatest players in team history, including Babe Ruth (3), Lou Gehrig (4), Joe DiMaggio (5), and Mickey Mantle (7). More recent players to have their numbers retired by the Yankees include Derek Jeter (2) and Mariano Rivera (42).But what about players who may have had successful careers with the Yankees, but not what many would call "All-Time Greats"? Some candidates in this realm include Jorge Posada (20), Paul O'Neill (21), Andy Pettitte (46), and Bernie Williams (51), all of whom played critical roles in the team's World Series championships from 1996-2009.Yankee TriviaWho is the Yankee hitter with the 5th most strikeouts in franchise history?AJ is on special assignment and I will be joined by my Dad, the Podcast Padre, during these dark Winter months.
